Baseball is the ultimate family sport. That was further proven when Justin Upton and B.J. Upton were on the receiving end of first pitches from family spanning three generations before the Atlanta Braves beat the San Francisco Giants Sunday night at Turner Field.

In honor of Father's Day, Manny "Bossman" Upton threw out his pitch to Justin while B.J. caught a pitch from his three-year-old son, Riley.

B.J. would later hit an RBI-double, while Justin added a single and a walk on top of his spectacular game-saving catch in the fourth inning.
